( - A pair of Eastern Conference contenders clash Friday night in the nations capital, as the Chicago Bulls put their impressive road record to the test against the Washington Wizards. The Bulls are 14-4 away from the Windy City and are just ahead of the Wizards in the standings. Chicago went 3-2 on a recent homestand and was dealt a 97-77 loss to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday. Jimmy Butler had 16 points, Taj Gibson gave 15 off the bench and Pau Gasol collected 13 points and six rebounds for the Bulls, who made just 33.3 percent from the floor, connected on 6-of-20 3-pointers and turned the ball over 16 times. Derrick Rose had seven points and hasnt shot better than 35 percent in each of his last six games. The normally defensive-minded Bulls allowed 34 points in the fourth quarter and lost for only the second time in the previous 12 games. I dont wont to overreact, but I dont want to under-react either, Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said afterward. You always ask yourselves before you start, theres two questions: did you play hard enough and did you execute properly? The readiness to play, that part is really my responsibility. I didnt like that part of it at all. Thibodeaus squad is 16-5 against teams from the East and 10-1 on the road against conference foes. After visiting DC, the Bulls will return to Chicago for three straight games versus Milwaukee, Orlando and Washington. Bulls forward Mike Dunleavy (ankle) is questionable against the Wizards. Washington will try to make it three straight wins Friday and posted a 101-91 triumph over the hapless New York Knicks Wednesday night. Nene scored 20 points and John Wall finished with 18 and eight assists to lead the Wizards, who scored 30 points in the first quarter and shot 51.3 percent. The Wizards used a big 17-5 run in the second half to pull away. It was important for us, Wizards head coach Randy Wittman said of the strong start to the second half. When youre dealing with a team thats going through transition, obviously with the trades and whats going on with their team, you want to come out right away and dont give them any life. Rasual Butler netted 14 points and both Bradley Beal and Marcin Gortat ended with 12 points. Gortat also grabbed 11 rebounds. The Wizards, who are 19-1 when holding teams under 100 points, improved to 15-4 at the Verizon Center and 16-6 against conference opponents. They are 9-2 at home versus the East. Wall is averaging 18.0 points and 10.8 assists at home this season. He has recorded 11 of his 20 double-doubles in front of the home crowd. Washington will visit the East-leading Hawks on Sunday and suffered a 99-91 loss to the Bulls on Dec. 23 at home. Wall and Gasol both scored 18 points in that one, while Rose led all scorers with 25 points. The Wizards eliminated the Bulls in five games during the first round of the playoffs last season. The teams will meet again Jan. 14 and March 3. Alvin Kamara Jersey .J. -- The Houston Astros had the No. Marcus Williams Jersey .

Mike Trout, Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun all homered to help the Los Angeles Angels get their first win of the season with an 11-1 rout of the Houston Astros. After being swept in a three-game series against Seattle to begin the season and scoring just eight runs over the three games, the Angels equaled that in the first six innings Friday. "I think with a game like this, hopefully, we build confidence," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Hopefully, on the offensive side we build confidence." Trout hit a solo homer in the first inning and Hamilton hit a three-run drive in the sixth off Jerome Williams that made it 8-1. After Erick Aybars RBI single, Calhoun added a two-run shot off Williams in the seventh. "As competitors, five out of eight games, we are capable of doing something like that," Hamilton said. "The talent is there. We dont go out and try to do that every day. We go out and have the at bats we are going to have. Thats contagious. Thats the mentality we have." Trout also threw out Marc Krauss at the plate in the second inning to keep the Astros off the scoreboard. Garrett Richards (1-0) allowed one run on three hits with five walks and seven strikeouts in five innings. "Its not just me, its all of us," Trout said. "It just happens that I got a home run, but look at Josh tonight. . We just have to keep pushing together, and we pitched well tonight with Garrett getting out of some battles and jams." Lucas Harrell ((0-1) was roughed up for five runs on seven hits with three walks and three strikeouts in three innings.dddddddddddd "With a lineup like that, they have so many good hitters you cant leave the ball over the plate like that," Harrell said. "You go from one hitter to the next, and there is no let-up. Thats why they are so good. You have to execute your pitches every time. I just left it over the plate too many times." Jose Altuve had two hits and a bases-loaded walk in the fifth inning. The Astros loaded the bases in the fifth and sixth innings but were only able to get the one run as Richards struck out Krauss to end the fifth and Fernando Salas struck out Marwin Gonzalez and induced an Alex Presley ground out to end the sixth.
